Popsilos and Ashop begin production

Eight artists will begin the production of five large-scale murals on farm silos starting now through to May 30th for the Popsilos project, a touristic circuit combining arts and agrifood in the Prescott and Russell countryside in celebration of Canada’s 150th. The public is invited to visit the sites during production while being respectful of the artists at work and everyone’s safety. The experienced mural artists were selected by a committee comprised of representatives from the Prescott-Russell Arts Council, the farm owners having submitted their silo for the project, the community, Popsilos and the international urban art agency Ashop, hired as artistic co-producer of the project.

The impressive lineup of artists includes:
